Oslo Børs to establish Merkur Market as a new alternative marketplace

Oslo Børs proposes to establish Merkur Market with effect from 1 January 2016 as a new alternative marketplace for trading of Norwegian and foreign shares, equity certificates and other financial instruments.

Merkur Market will be a multilateral trading facility (MTF) operated by Oslo Børs. The new marketplace will be open to new categories of issuers and will widen the range of products offered by Oslo Børs. The new marketplace will not fall under the framework of regulated markets as set out in the Norwegian Securities Trading Act, such as Oslo Børs and Oslo Axess, hence there will be a significant simplified procedure for listing on Merkur Market compared to Oslo Børs and Oslo Axess.
